Our Team

Our team includes Rheumatologists, Nurse Practitioners, Physical and Occupational Therapists and a Social Worker.

We are a member of the Pediatric Rheumatology Collaborative Study Group, a research consortium of board-certified pediatric Rheumatologist at academic medical centers focused on identifying and testing new forms of drug therapy for Rheumatologic Disorders. This allows our patients to have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials of innovative treatments.

Our Occupational Therapist is funded by the Western New York Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation and is present weekly in one of our clinic sessions.
